Oh Hi!  I am just checking in to give a recap of the last couple of days.  It’s been a whirlwind of a week so far and we are already halfway through!  I am not complaining at all.

Tuesday I was lucky and got to sleep in a little bit because C had an appointment. I relaxed in bed longer than I normally can and then got up and did this plank workout for the first time. I will definitely be doing this again.

I made myself a delicious healthy breakfast and actually got to sit down and enjoy it without feeling too rushed.

I hit up the gym in the evening and it was a really fun class.  It was a smaller class than usual on a Tuesday and we did 3 short 5 minute AMRAPS.

1- plate pushes and wall balls

2- ring jackknives, ankle touches and flutterkicks

3- plate push ups, sit ups and mountain climbers

After we worked on our strict pull ups and I was able to do a few without a band, not strung together but individual ones I did get a few.

When I got home there was a delicious dinner of steak, salad and quinoa with edamame waiting for me thanks to my amazing husband.  I am a lucky girl that’s for sure.  I was so hungry I didn’t snap a photo. #fail

Wednesday’s workout started with strict press for strength.  We worked to find our 3 rep max.  I managed to PR my 3 rep max and got three reps at 70 lbs.  We didn’t use racks, so that was including a clean.  Pretty great right???  We then used that weight for the wod.

10-1 push press

20 lunges

Basically starting with 10 and going down by one each round, and doing the lunges each time.  I alternated rounds doing squats and sit ups instead of lunges just to be nicer to my knee and hip.  When I heard the workout and saw I was supposed to use 70 lbs I thought there was no way I could do it.  I tried and was impressed to see I was able to get into the 5th round before I dropped it.  My wrists were killing and really that’s why I had to drop it.  I only took off 2.5 lbs per side and did the remainder with 65 lbs.  I felt amazing that I was able to get through that much with that weight.  Definitely getting stronger.  We finished off with some intervals of high knee sprints to get a burst of cardio.

I spent the evening relaxing.  C is a little under the weather so we took it easy.  I enjoyed my current favourite snack while watching some tv, and placing an online lululemon order.

Now we are almost through the week and it’s a long weekend coming up so life is feeling really good for me despite what’s been a bit of a rough week.  Adult problems I guess.

What’s your favourite evening snack?
